    Jesus Christ. This is why I always try and run all hots in the same room with the same phase.

    We are starting the last phase ( :jj: ) of a three part rewiring of our house...what a major pain in the ass, and wallet. Starting March 9th, we are having new wires run to the attic, and then dropped into three bedrooms, hall and bathroom...:eek:

    At first I thought he had installed a three way switch by mistake, the hair dryer thing has me puzzled. I've done quite a bit of home improvements in my life, gutted parts of my house down to the studs but never had an issue like that hair dryer thing

    He had multiple phases, a switched outlet, and an open neutral somewhere.

    Should his cackling wife have the fire dept on speed dial instead of recording this?
